The people of Abigborodo in Warri North Local Government Area, Delta State have extolled the virtues of immediate past governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, describing him as a blessing to the community, Itsekiri nation and the state.
Mr. Monday Agbeyi, Chairman, Abigborodo community, in a statement on behalf of the Olare Aja of Abigborodo Community and the Olare Aja-In- Council, expressed appreciation to God for the life of Dr. Uduaghan who clocked 62 years recently.
The community expressed satisfaction with the way he piloted the affairs of the state for eight years which, they said, saw the execution of the Sapele-Abigborodo- Aruowun road project, dualization of the Ugbenu-Koko road project, construction of the Trans Warri/Ode Itsekiri bridges and access roads from the Deeper Life Road junction at Ubeji to the Warri River bank at Ifiekporo which has turned the entire area to an industrial hub.
“We also wish to remember him for the construction of network of internal roads and drainages at Ode Itsekiri Island, Ugbuwangue, Egbokodo Itsekiri among others,” he said.
